Rena Owen is So Good
23 October 2008 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

Many movie-going Kiwis are still recovering from Vincent Ward's 'Vigil' which plunged us all into a world of grim grey despair.

And still more of us have no trouble remembering how we felt leaving the movie theatre after watching Rena Owen in Once Were Warriers. That was grim too.

And now here they are, both together, telling another story which is not just grim, but downright sad.

But it's beautifully done. Ward has an eye for the detail of human frailty which somehow he manages to get up there on the big screen, whether he's recounting fact (like this story) or fiction.

It's just brilliant work and Rena, girl, you are all class.
